So here is a little background about me. I graduated college with a business degree concentrating in both accounting and finance. I am a numbers nerd, and I love it! I then got a great job working for a Department of Defense contractor. I really enjoyed being part of something so important. I was encouraged to work on my Masters degree while working there, so I signed up for graduate school and started night classes.
During this time, I brought my youngest daughter into the world. Suddenly my strong desire to conquer the world disappeared as my new desire of being a mom overtook. I finished my master's degree with a concentration in finance, but left my wonderful job. That was 12 years ago. Now two more kids later, I am still loving my life as a stay-at-home mom. I do miss the work environment and the challenges that came with success. I wouldn't trade the time I have spent with my children though.
Because I realize that there are a lot of moms out there that are not so nerdy with numbers, I hope to publish several financial articles in this month's blog posts. My goal is not to bore you with details, but to explain things I do to mange my household's finances in this crazy world we live in. A few topics I am thinking of are paying allowance, saving for college, responsible spending, and how to determine personal financial goals. Let me know of any other ideas you may have as I would love to get feedback!
